My dvd player will turn on and run for no longer than 5 minutes until it shuts down and power quits running through the player. I removed the top panel and placed my hand one silver block or column- possibly this is called a contacter- I dunno- anyway it's ridiculously hot. If this tremendous overheating is what's causing my player to shut down what can I do?

Hello If the DVD do not spins inside the playere, this type of fault can occur. Open the top cover of the player and insert a dvd. See whether it spins inside or not. If not, replace the motor that spins the disc inside. This motor is known as Sled motor. If disc spins inide and the player do not read or play it, replace the Laser Pickup Unit. It is faulty.
The unit's embedded software is running the system checks before powering up anything that has failed or could be damaged. The microprocessor could be bad too. Check for shorts on the outputs and inspect for burned components.
This dvd/vcr unit is having a problem with component failure. It is probably in the main power supply section, since the unit shuts down. This can happen in these products due to the qulaity of component use in the product runs. The components usually have 5% to 10% failure rate. Which is usually taken care of by the product warranty. Unfornately this is a common problem with big manufactuers and large production runs. You need to have the unit tested and serviced at a service center. The service center will have all the service information to repair you unit. The Magnavox Customer support telephone is 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of you unit and about the problem with the unit shutting down during use. They will be able to tell how to your unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
There could be several factors. Are there any indication or failure lights/codes prior to the unit shutting down? You didn't mention where the unit is located. Does it initially start to read the disc then shut down or is there no activity at all? Please respond with some additional info & we'll go from there.
Shutting down completely like power is gone or just DVD stopping with power on? If completely shutting down the look in power supply and find bad capacitor and replace. If DVD stops with power then look at laser, clean or maybe damaged.
laser problem just trash it. I got one that have the problem 2 months after purchase and was sent back to manufacturer after another 3 months I'm getting disc error. I guess they have a problem on the laser reading assy
